Don't let the simplicity of this brewing method fool you, a basic drip coffeecan still be very tasty. It's quick, convenient and mostly automatic after the initial set up. For these reasons, a simple drip coffee is a morning staple for many households.
While it is by far the most popular method of making coffee in the U.S., it can still be confusing if you've never used a drip brewer before. More-so, with a few quick tips and tricks, you can bump up the quality of your drip coffee to make the most out of every pot brewed! So, here are some easy to follow steps to make sure you're doing it right.
Before working through the entire brewing process, we recommend that you ensure the water temperature is at the optimal level. To do so, simply run a full brewing cycle with filtered water into a clean and empty carafe. Then carefully pour the water back into the water reservoir before beginning the actual brewing process. This will allow your device to reach a higher brewing temperature, in line with our recommended 195º temperature, which is unlikely to occur with the water starting at room temperature.
1. Remove carafe and fill to desired water level
2. Lift top lid and pour water from carafe into reservoir.
3. Replace carafe back on heating plate.
4. Add freshly ground G&H coffee into the metal filter. A good rule of thumb is 1 Tbsp of coffee for every cup of water.
5. Close lid.
6. Press "Bold" if you want a stronger brew.
7. Press "Carafe Temp" to select your heat setting.
8. Press "Brew" to start.
We hope these tips help you enjoy your Cuisinart Coffee Maker! And quickly, too. The sooner you drink the coffee, the better the flavor. If making a large pot for many to enjoy, it's best to freshen up the pot at least every hour. And as always, for the best possibly sipping experience, be sure to use fresh ground coffee for every brew.

How do you turn off the clean light on a Cuisinart coffee maker?
If the light is still flashing after running the cleaning cycle, you need to run another cleaning cycle or make sure it is finished.
Usually, you only need to press the brew button to make sure all the vinegar and water mixture in the reservoir has been removed.
From there, turn the machine on and off. If the light is still blinking at this time, call Cuisinart Customer Service for further assistance.

I HAVE A 10 CUP CUISIART..I AM “NOT” INTO DOING ANY PROGRAMING! I PUT 10 CUPS OF WATER IN AND EXPECT IT TO BREW 10 CUPS OF COFFEE….IT DOESN’T DO THAT. IT BREWS NEARLY HALF OF THE WATER AND THE REST IS SITTING IN THE TOP AT A DEAD STOP. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I PUSH THE BREW BUTTON IT DOES NOT ACTIVATE THE BREWING PROCESS AND THE WATER REMAINS IN THE COFFE GROUNDS IN THE TOP OF THE MACHINE. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO TO MAKE THE MACHINE BREW THE ENTIRE 10 CUPS? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!
